Unstuck: From Depression to Delight James Gordon, MD

We’ll begin with a critique of the theory that sees depression as the end point of a disease process and show how depression and other forms of physical, emotional, and spiritual stuckness can be the beginning of a journey toward health and wholeness. We’ll discuss self-expression through words, drawings, and movement, and techniques that mobilize our capacity to understand and help ourselves. At the end of the talk, participants will have an understanding of the 7 stages of the journey out of depression, of the role they as clinicians can play as guides on this journey, and an experience of two or three techniques that they can integrate into their own lives and practice.
